The effects of electrical stimulation of the rat's contralateral frontal cortex as well as bilateral central amygdaloid nuclei were examined on the masseteric and mylohyoid-anterior digastric motoneurons which innervate a jaw closing muscle and jaw opening ones, respectively. Thirty-six percent of masseteric motoneurons were inhibited and 14% were… CONTINUE READING
